Description Did you ever know that lawn gnomes feed on the souls of human beings? Well, they do when they are possessed by the Devil. I like to call these little soul-sucking critters 'Doom Gnomes.' For the fact that running into one means certain doom.They emerge at night from dark, thickly wooded areas. Then stalk you from your garden or lawn, until the time to strike is right.Noticing a gnome in your garden or lawn that was not there before is a good sign of the presence of a Doom Gnome. Be sure to grab a sledge hammer before going outdoors, just in case.
